Remember To Check-Off $3 On Your 2018 State Tax Return

Posted on Feb 1, 2018 in Main

The Commission reminds Hawaii tax filers to check off the $3 “Yes” checkbox on your 2018 state tax return which permits $3 from state funds (or $6 if married and filing a joint return) to be allocated to the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund.  The health and sustainability of public funding depends on greater participation of Hawaii taxpayers in checking off the $3 checkbox.  Our thanks to Common Cause Hawaii for their commitment and efforts in promoting this outreach.

What You Need to Know about the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund

By marking the $3 “Yes” checkbox for the Hawaii Election Campaign Fund,
you support the work of the Hawaii Campaign Spending Commission.
The Commission serves Hawaii citizens by helping to ensure that:

♦ Campaign contributions and expenditures are lawful and transparent; and
♦ Qualified candidates have an opportunity to run for office and receive funding for their campaigns.

Choose “Yes” on your tax return

It does NOT reduce the amount of your refund
or increase the amount of your tax payment.
